Review: Manic Panic Hair Dye

There are plenty of hair coloring products available and it can sometimes become overwhelming for some women to pick out the best possible color product for themselves. If you are looking for over the top hair colors then Manic Panic is the brand for you. They have amazing shades of red, blue, purple, yellow, pink and green. There are a couple of reasons why Manic Panic is amazing for one all products are vegan which means it that the products contains no animal by-products. The products are not tested on animals and that is a great thing.

Manic Panic is a semi-permanent cream color that has conditions to add moisture to the hair. These products work best on lighten hair (bleached hair) for this will give the most intense results. The products do work on brown hair colors, but the results will not be as vibrant as it would be on lightened hair. The color will typically last anywhere from 4-6 weeks and the lighter shades will typically fade fasters than darker shades. There are ways to take care of your colored hair as do not use shampoos and conditioners that have oils and clarifiers. Instead use gentle/mild shampoos that are free of oils and clarifiers.

There are some shades that also come in the form of the Amplified Collection, which means that the formula for the dye is stronger and will last around 30% longer than the originals. Both original and amplified products are ready to use, so there is no mixing or usage of peroxide for these products.

The first picture below shows Manic Panic product Hot Hot Pink on lightened hair and the second picture shows the exact same product on brown hair. This is an example of how bleach hair and natural hair produce different results when using the same product.

I would highly recommend Manic Panic for those who are looking for bright, vibrant fun colors to use for dying their hair. Plus, another neat thing about this product is that some of the shades will glow in the dark under a black light. How cool is that? Looking for a review on cosmetics?

“Simple” Cleaning Facial Wipes Review

Sometimes the ritual of washing “one’s” face can get a little a tiring and time consuming,  so I was shopping for an alternative to replace my facial wash cleanser and for something to minimize the time it takes to wash my face. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything that sounded 100 percent good or practical. However, I did run into “Simple” Cleansing Facial Wipes. These are really great, affordable and sensitive enough for all skin types.

“Simple” Cleansing Facial Wipes are basically just like baby wipes but for your face. For the most part these wipes are great for all skin types as they’re enriched with vital vitamins. They don’t contain water and they’re oil free as well; they’re also dye free and and don’t contain any scents or perfumes.  They’re truly very gentle on the face as it lifts up superficial dirt.

The “Simple” Cleansing Facial Wipes are great to use if you’re too tired to wash your face after a night out. For example, to remove make up… They’re also good for a middle of the day face cleansing. For instance, if you’re a stay at home mom or work from home and don’t have to worry about removing your make up the “Simple” facial wipes are a great way to refresh your skin and keep it clean and sanitized without having to go through a complete facial wash ritual.

Though the “Simple” Cleansing Facial Wipes are great I don’t recommend that you use them as your only facial cleanser, as it is not a deep cleanser that penetrates down to your pours. I’m a firm believer of a rigorous, face wash ritual which includes a good facial cleanser, some kind of wash cloth and hot and cold water. So even though, “Simple” Cleansing Facial Wipes are very good for late nights and mid day facial cleanings, I wouldn’t toss out your regular face wash nor the routine of deep washing your face.

If you can afford to have another face cleaner on the side such as facial wipes from “Simple” then I’d say go ahead and get them but do not replace facial wipes over washing your face thoroughly. “Simple” Cleansing Facial Wipes cost just about $7.00 or less depending on where you purchase them. You can find these at your nearest Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and even at some supermarkets such as Publix or Winn Dixie.
